I visited recently and was surprised at the price of the place. I paid over $20 for an adult ticket. Some time ago when the place was new it would have been great. Sadly it is outdated and overpriced. The place does need an overhaul...More

Great place to visit. Suggest you set aside 2 to 3 hours if you take on the full experience, interacting with all the exhibits. Cafe OK but no more than that. Good range of books and tourist items.

great, educational and enlightening. We arrived a little late, a little over an hour before the Visitor Centre closed. Staff at the centre were very pleasant and helpful and we quite surprised when we were offered a free return ticket.

Hi John thanks for your great review, glad you enjoyed your visit. People are often surprised with the free pass out we offer but as there is so much to see we understand it is not always possible to finish the display in one visit.

Wadlata has everything a traveller needs. Friendly staff, good food & coffee, clean amenities, large vehicle parking, and a wealth of information along with a large range of souvenirs. It’s also a popular lunch stop for the locals. Thanks very much
